Whoopi Goldberg found it extremely difficult to get through “The View” this morning as she talked about her longtime friend and colleague Mike Nichols’ passing. Co-host Rosie O’ Donnell stepped in to console Whoopi, who fought back tears, while “View” newcomer Nicolle Wallace chimed in to finish the segment.

“This man meant the world to her,” Wallace said. Nichols died from a heart attack, yesterday. Nichols is credited with launching Whoopi’s career.

Some of Nichols’ works include: “The Graduate,” “Working Girl,” “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?,” “Closer,” “Charlie Wilson’s War,” “Annie,” “Spamalot” and “The Birdcage.”

He was 83-years-old.
